Probably somewhere in between thinking too much and not thinking enough. Could just be lack of trust in my swing.

A few beers could be what the game/brain needs.

Maybe you should play golf with Bucky's wife, sounds like she carries a drink or two....

That's a good question for the bunch. How'd you decide on who you picked as a teammate? In other words why did you pick me if you wanted to compete @palvord 🤣

I had met and played golf with @Apolloshowl earlier this year, he's another lefty, he has Arccos and need I mention his dog?

I am really glad they are working for you. Are your chipping issues because of the single lengths or has it always been a problem area for your game? I spent a week on Cape Cod over the 4th of July and my son and I chipped for about an hour everyday and it made a huge difference on the course.

So there you go, on top of work and keeping up with the challenge add an hour of chipping each day to the agenda.

Honestly it's a practice issue. There was a season where I was practicing just that and I got pretty good. But like anything feel related in this game, if you don't keep working at it you lose it. And my wedges are not single.length so can't blame my poor chipping on that. Ha

This challenge has such an emphasis on playing rounds that there just isn't time for me to play and practice too. Once the challenge is over I'll probably spend one of the weekdays I usually spend playing 9 as a practice session again to try and bring that chipping handicap down.

Nice shots! I know you stated earlier in the thread that you got pretty long shots, but that 238 with a five iron is impressive! The one regret I have in getting fit for my Cobra's last year is that I didn't even think about trying the one lengths. Don't get me wrong, I love the F8's, but I still struggle with the long irons from time to time.

Great job so far this week guys!

You could always try a mixed set. Or buy a one length 5 iron and see how you like it. You might could even do a utry or rental program or something. 

I mentioned this before but it does take an adjustment. If you remember from earlier in the thread I couldn't hit the long irons the right distance for the longest time and then suddenly 2 or 3 weeks after getting the clubs something clicked and now I love them.

On vacation. Called a local course yesterday to find out when they opened so I could be first off the tee. Woke up at 5am (again - on vacation) and arrived at 6am only to find the pro shop is locked. Maintenance kid said the course opens at 6 and he doesn’t know why no one is here.

Nice start to my first four club challenge round for the week.

I hope you two at least get a participation trophy. 

HELL NO!

I don't believe in those things. Winners get trophies. Everyone else just learns lessons.

Did you ever get on the course? I would be livid. Like Sergio on the greens kinda livid.

After 20 minutes I said F' it and just walked to the first tee.  I stopped in the pro shop at the turn and told the guy what happened.  He said he never gets there before 6:30 in the morning and had no idea why the guy I talked to yesterday said 6am.

They ended up charging me the 18 hole walking rate but gave me a free cart and a gatorade for the back 9.  That worked for me.

Well that makes up for it I guess. At least you got to play.

That's ridiculous - which course?  I know a lot of the courses in your area - remember I lived in Sheboygan and had several friends in Milwaukee that I would come down to play with.  One had ties to Tuckaway - got to play there a few times. 🙂

I’m in the Madison area this week. Playing my rounds at Door Creek GC in Cottage Grove, WI. Nice short par 71 from the middle tees is perfect for the 4 club challenge.

Bout to head to the course here in 90 minutes. The winds are up, and its hot AF, but I'm stoked to give this a shot and represent team @palvord aka WEAPONS OF GRASS DESTRUCTION.

Like @revkev I picked the course and the clubs that should allow me to not have to get too creative barring any really bad shots. Only concerns are 2 of the Par 3's but I'm hoping I can squeeze out a par.

Picking up pizzas for web wednesday after, and top it all off by watching the opening round of The Open. Life is gooooooooooooooood.

Just out of curiosity what is HOT AF in Hawaii??

currently 87F and 60% humidity

feels hotter than it measures because we're so close to the equator. the sun here doesn't mess around!

Figure I'd chime in. Played first round yesterday with the 4 club Challenge (Thanks MGS and John for the invite!) Played pretty well and honestly made me think I could always play with 4 clubs. I may be wrong, but I believe @Nunfa0 and I are the only team to not take a driver? Guess we will see how that pays off...

Hopefully will get another 2 cracks at it this week. With one sub 80 round in the books should be fun to see how low I can go! Here are some photos from the yesterday morning. IMG_20190716_103414.thumb.jpg.fa4170b6d4101ff0f06edd894f0ef0ad.jpgIMG_20190716_093605.thumb.jpg.f05a820259880a7eeeb4a80c9e20ac44.jpgIMG_20190716_084232.thumb.jpg.bf37058d287ef4e419ee6840bbc774e9.jpg

Apollo was looking handsome that day 😁
